coach aqilah

B.Sc (Physiology)

Aqilah Norazman is a Strength and Nutrition Coach, Speaker and Founder of 1-Habit.

Co-Founder & COO

Mairah - the brain of the company, always makes sure whatever her visionary partner’s (Aqilah) dreams are executed the best and most efficient way possible. She has always been part of the company (in the background) however of late she decided to step up to run 1-Habit alongside Aqilah.

With over 10 years of experience in the Digital and eCommerce industry, she hopes to bring her expertise on to the table to further push 1-Habit beyond just a typical brick and mortar fitness studio. Focusing more on the business operations of the company which includes tech, administrative, corporate and product, you will only see her behind her two screens most of the time - racking her brain.

Mairah may look intimidating but she’s playful at heart. She once dreamt of becoming a dancer, a musician or even an x-games skater. Ironically, she hates going to the gym but always up for a competitive sports challenge - soccer or table tennis anyone?

coach ash

It's the reason she's so driven to help those navigating these struggles. Having seen first-hand what strength training has done for her physical and mental health, Ash believes everyone with a fitness goal should give strength training a shot! Her goal as a coach?

Coach Shakira

ACE Certified Personal Trainer

Having started her fitness journey by going for a variety of group exercise classes, Shakira remembers the awesome vibes from these classes. She enjoyed kickboxing inspired classes so much that she went on to learn Muay Thai. Realising the importance of strength training in developing stronger kicks and punches, this will be the focus of her next chapter.

She recalls struggling with the many different exercises to build strength . Skull crushers, bent over rows, push ups and so much more. What got her through had been the patience of the wonderful coaches coupled with their on-point cues.

From this experience, she hopes to inspire and coach others to get stronger through proper form and technique.
